Monday 6th April to Saturday 18th April 2020 for 11 nights with NO performance on Good Friday 10th or Easter Sunday 12th April
Spinning the Moon is a compelling new community play based on documents provided by the DCPA Research Group.
Set in the early 16th century, the play, like Shakespeare’s history plays, has taken a sense of what was happening in Dorset over a fifty-year period and has conflated those happenings to create a work of dramatic fiction.
Central to the action are the Trenchard family, who lived at Wolfeton House on the outskirts of Dorchester. The Trenchards are desperately trying to stop their home, and the people who work their land, from spinning towards economic collapse and ruining the lives of all who depend on the estate for their livelihoods. But the advice they take from a monk leaves their community fractured to the point of violent disintegration.
Characters in the play include: the Trenchard family, farmers, shepherds and their families, the Queen of Spain and her entourage and the cunning women who live in the hills.

Luckily, there's one on hand...and his name is Shrek.
Based on the story and characters from the Oscar winning DreamWorks Animation film, this Tony Award-winning, hilarious and spectacular production turns the world of fairytales upside down in an all-singing, all-dancing, fast-paced musical comedy.

The Magnificent Seven
Author: Catherine O’Reilly & Tim Churchill
Venue: Woodford Community Centre. SK7 1PSBox Office: TicketSource
22nd – 25th April 2020
It’s 1994 and the residents of SunnySide care home, a quiet residential home for the elderly, are going about their mundane routine, overseen by the anally-retentive manager, Mr Maybrick. Their invisible existence has become an accepted way of life until one day a letter arrives and a dramatic discovery prompts seven World War II veterans to reflect on their lives and their value as human beings.
As the 50th anniversary of D-Day approaches, these unsung heroes decide to journey to the beaches of Normandy one last time. However, disaster strikes in the form of a newly appointed nurse whose strict methods soon make the residents feel like they are prisoners of war. Consequently, they must plan their greatest escape yet… to go behind enemy lines and spring themselves from the home.
There’s the formidable serial knitter Betty, an ex-Ministry Of War secretary; wheelchair-bound Brian, a former spitfire pilot; the flamboyant Ron and the forever-sleeping Sid, two ex-prisoners of the infamous Colditz; the mysterious Bletchley code breaker, Flo; and two heroes of the D-Day landings: wide boy wheeler-dealer Reg, and the secretive and withdrawn, Bill.
Join them on an unforgettable adventure of honour, love, loss, official secrets, balaclavas, biscuits and Ninja Turtles in this poignant, yet funny, play, inspired by the true story of Bernard Jordan.

Look Back in Anger
Author: John Osborne
Venue: King Alfred Phoenix Theatre, Ivy Wood, North End Road London NW11 7HYBox Office: TicketSource
Wednesday 23rd - Saturday 25th April 2020
Directed by Michael Reffold (Assistant Director for Garden Suburb Theatre’s acclaimed open-air production of Our Country’s Good in July 2019), Look Back in Anger explores the breakdown of a marriage between original “angry young man” Jimmy Porter and his wife Alison, who Jimmy resents for being of a higher social class than him. Their relatively stable life in a small, dingy apartment with Jimmy’s friend Cliff is disrupted by the arrival of Helena, a long-time friend of Alison’s, who seems to have her own agenda and turns their existence on its head.
With a number of intense stand-offs, characters with depth, and a host of psychological avenues to explore, this dark 50s drama is sure to be explosive.

From Panto to Farce!
The Latimer Players production of Robinson Crusoe and the Pirates last November was a huge success, playing to full houses. The new members to the group made a big hit with our audience and we are pleased to say that some of them will be appearing in our spring production.
Our spring production will be ‘Love and Money’ by Raymond Hopkins. We have built up a good rapport with Ray, having performed several of his plays, which our audiences appear to like, and our members enjoy performing.
‘Love and Money’ is a farcical comedy which takes place in the lounge of the Feltons’ house.
Life has been passing fairly smoothly for Derek and Pauline Felton until one evening when they return home to find their home has been burgled. Derek has always had a materialistic outlook on life and decides that their new house insurance policy will yield a lucrative pay out. Pauline becomes increasingly unhappy about her husband’s course of action.
Neighbour, Joyce Clements witnessed the robbery and calls in daily to offer support, advice and unwelcome comments. To add to the mayhem the vicar unexpectedly calls round. The hilarious confusion which follows has a surprising twist at the end which means the Feltons’ lives will never be the same again.

However, the family encounters an unforeseen obstacle when Wednesday decides to introduce her new “normal” boyfriend Lucas to the family. In protest, Uncle Fester enlists the help of the Addams’ ancestors to call an end to the young budding romance.
As the families of Wednesday and Lucas come together for dinner one fateful evening, chaos ensues and the two families find themselves admitting deep secrets and coming together in ways they never would have imagined.
